Jason Derulo Ridin Solo
(WBR) After whipping the studio audience into a frenzy with an electrifying performance of his hit single "In My Head" on American Idol April 7th, red-hot pop sensation Jason Derulo is gearing up to release his new single, "Ridin' Solo," to pop radio Wednesday, April 28th.
The track follows up the triple-threat singer, songwriter, and dancer's two #1 smash hit singles, "Whatcha Say" and "In My Head" — all from his self-titled debut album, out now on Warner Bros. Records/Beluga Heights. The video for "Ridin' Solo," which was directed by Scott Speer (Ashley Tisdale, The Veronicas), will premiere on E! Online (www.eonline.com) on Thursday, April 29th at 6 A.M. PT.
The 20-year-old Miami-born Derulo has quickly established himself as one of the breakout stars of 2010. With the triple-platinum "Whatcha Say" (which spent four consecutive weeks atop the Pop chart), and the platinum "In My Head," Derulo became the first male solo artist to score consecutive #1's on Billboard's Pop Songs radio airplay chart in the chart's 17-year-history with his first two entries. "Whatcha Say," which climbed to #1 on Billboard's Hot 100, Rhythmic, and Pop charts, has sold four million copies, while "In My Head" has sold more than 2.5 million copies, both worldwide, to date.
The first artist signed to Warner Bros. Records' joint venture with multi-platinum songwriter and producer J.R. Rotem's label Beluga Heights, Derulo wrote or co-wrote each track on his debut album, which was produced by Rotem, who has also worked with Rihanna, Leona Lewis, Rick Ross, and many others. Following its March 2nd release, the album debuted at #4 on the Digital Albums chart and #11 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart.
In addition to American Idol, Derulo has recently appeared on George Lopez's Lopez Tonight and has performed "In My Head" on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Collectively, his videos have racked up more than 116 million views on YouTube, making Derulo the channel's 36th Most Viewed Musician of all time.
